The Town of Hamburg Highway Department works diligently to assure proper drainage is maintained in the Town right-of-way.

Our storm sewers are maintained to provide for safe and efficient removal of storm water.

Although open ditches perform well, we encourage residents to enclose the ditch along their frontage since it does improve the appearance of the residential property and reduce maintenance on open ditches.

Home owners can contract with a private contractor to install pipes after obtaining a Highway permit and adherence to Highway specifications.

The Highway Department also works with homeowners who agree to pay for the cost of installation by our department. Budget restraints have reduced our capacity to install residential piping and we currently have a backlog of requests.
